Excellent hiking. Moderate difficulty with tons of uphill hiking and waterfalls. Best hiking around in the south.

Pretty intense for an out of shape forty-something couple. A little crowded, but beautiful.

This was a fun trail. I went in early Feb. The weather was perfect. There are a few up and downs to climb. The scenery is very nice. We got there Sunday morning about 9:00AM. There were a few cars there. Only saw a few other people on the primitive trail. When we left around noon or so the parking lot was packed and cars were lined up along the road. I believe most people were just hanging around that first waterfall and in the creek. Will definitely go back.

This was my first time ever hiking and I loved it! I went with my brother and sister who had already hiked the trail before. We also took my daughter and niece who are 13 and 14 years old. We did 6.2 miles in 4 hours 52 minutes. We did add some time and mileage to our trip by hiking in and then back out of trails. It was a beautiful day in March not to hot and not to cold. There was quite a bit of steep up and downs along the primitive trail. I would recommend waterproof hiking boots after a hard rain, a walking pole and about 2 liters of drinking water. We hiked it pretty much non stop taking a 15 minute lunch break at one of the waterfalls. This was a good workout! We want to build up to hiking it twice in one day.

Hiked Saturday and Sunday. The rain Saturday night changed the creek and falls so it was like hiking a new trail. Love following the creek bed and hanging out at the waterfalls.

The trip was great, and a little more rigorous than we all thought it was going to be. The waterfalls were awesome! The water was a little chilly, but still enjoyable. We picked a perfect day to go out there, and we'll be definitely be going back and spending the night next time we go.

Was there last weekend took many pictures had a great time,when we got home I was going through our pictures and one of my pictures had something in the woods staring at us, never seen when we took picture but it is in the picture I took. Not sure if it's a person or ghost, it look like a person in a blue r purple shirt and shorts, but we can see through arms and legs, everyone we have showed picture to has freaked out and said it's a ghost, does anyone have strange pictures or know if ghost are in these woods??? I am trying to post this picture but I can't seem to

Great spot! There are three seperate trails. We took a picture of the map up front and it worked well. Throughout the years, I have done all 3 trails. I enjoy the primitive, but we could never find the waterfalls. The creek bed trail is fun and leads to the bottom of the falls. There wasn't much water to swim in this time, but it was a nice break from the heat to dip under.

So far this is the best trail I have been able to find within a reasonable distance from NOLA. When you get there, it's a little confusing bc the trail is not marked well. Just ask someone which way to the falls and they'll point you down to the creek bed and the falls. We saw quite a few other hikers out at this trail and talked to others who said its quite popular. 5 waterfalls over all and the water is nice and cool even in the heat of summer. If you like to hike and live in southern Louisiana or Mississippi this is a must do! Don't forget to bring a couple of $1's. There's and honor box at the trail head.
